Sterling and Peugeot are absent because they have pulled out of the United States. Rolls-Royce is not exhibiting and is suffering double humiliation: It is leasing its regal sedans to improve cash flow, and the historic company is up for sale. Few have forgotten General Motors' plans to lay off 74,000.

Chevrolet, once the stalwart among General Motors Corp.'s car divisions, announced a restructuring Friday that will cut about 350 white-collar jobs in the next year. The announcement was the latest in a succession of steps GM is taking to cut its bloated work force and reverse staggering losses in profits and market share. The 17% cut in personnel at GM's largest division will come through early retirements and attrition, spokesman Dave Hudgens said.
